One of the original market buildings still standing (and dating back to 1906), the Western Market is now really a glorified souvenir stand with several uninspiring shops located on two levels. While the exterior is worth a look at entering the building is a waste...More

From the outside, the building looked interesting with its historic architecture. But once inside, nothing much. Just a few shops on the ground floor, the entire 2nd floor was filled with textile shops with no customers. The 3rd floor was a deserted restaurant that looked...More

Slightly disappointing. Beautiful historic building that is sadly underused. Tourist shops on bottom. Fabric on next level (so if you want to buy fabric I suppose that's good) On the top a restaurant that looked like a wedding venue serving Sunday Brunch.

The potential for this place to be a bustling tourist attraction is very high. It's an old market place with some great looking architecture in the foundation. The problem is that it's just run down, and the businesses are not something a tourist would really...More

This is an old building that is now a shopping arcade. Its got some historical importance as an old market place for Hong Kong. Not much happens there except restaurants and clothing material suppliers.
